re: Your Guide to the New Expansion

Note: I do not take credit for the information in this post. All info was originally posted by Asterlle and others on the PWI Forum. I am simply compiling them for Xeon members to have easy and quick access to.

New Features Added in the Descent Expansion

New Map - Morai
A new world of Morai is now accessible from the Spirit Loyan NPC in Elysium village. You have to be level 95+ to enter. The new map is roughly the size of the Earthguard lands added in the Genesis Expansion. After you complete the discovery quest you can enter Morai through the Morai Guide found in major cities.

Joining an Order

There are 3 orders headquartered in the new map you can align yourself with to gain access to new equipment, items, and skills.

Order of Corona -

Located in Corona Sanctuary in the South East of Morai. To join talk to Corona King Kisian and pay a 200k fee.

Order of Shroud -

Located in Shrouded Temple in the North East of Morai. To join talk to Shroud Prophet Mogo and pay a 200k fee.

Order of Luminance -

Located in the Nexus of Luminance mid North of Morai. To join talk to Luminance Lord Gugg and pay a 200k fee.

Once you join an order you gain a new title above your name and the sigil of your order appears next to your portrait.

Acquiring Prestige and Influence

Joining an order is the first step to acquiring new gears and skills. Each order has their own Prestige and Influence that is particular to that order. Both are acquired through daily and weekly quests.

Gaining prestige with an order unlocks access to new items and equipment which you acquire by spending influence and coins.[/b]

Divine Quests[/b]

Each Order has their own divine emissary. Before talking to the Emissary you have to pick up a Divine Order of Longevity from your Order's leader. This is what lets you get quests from the Emissary. You can pick up 2 Divine Quests per day

White Quest = 20 Prestige / 10 influence
Purple Quest = 40 Prestige / 20 influence

Hour Quest
Once a day you can pick up a timed quest from the Lieutenant of your Order. This quest must be completed in one hour and awards 25 prestige and 10 influence.

Wraith Slayer Missive
The leader of your order will offer you a Wraith Slayer Missive. For a squad with at least 1 member from each of the other orders and the squad leader can pick up a Wraith Slaying quest from the order leader.

Completing this quests gives 60 Prestige and no influence. This can be done once per week.

Saturday Public Event

There is a weekly public event every Saturday at 6:30 PM server time available from your Order's Lieutenant. Collectively 300 mobs have to be killed followed by a boss. Every order has their own separate public quest.

You need a minimum of 100 contribution points to get the award of 80 prestige and 30 influence.

If you perform all of your daily's and the weekly's you will be acquiring 595 Prestige and 240 influence a week. That means it takes 6 weeks to get your skill per order.

Leaving an Order

To leave an Order you have to talk to the leader of that order. Once you leave you sacrifice 5% of your accumulated prestige and influence with that order and can not join another Order for 1 day. You cannot leave another Order for 7 days after you leave an order.

Changes to Existing Skills

- Seeker squad buffs will no longer consume a mirage
- Quid Pro Quo can no longer transfer the "Decrease Maximum HP" debuff
- Absolute Domain genie skill is no longer an AOE
- 5% damage decrease to 4aps and 5aps (confirmed), "20% accuracy decrease" (unobserved)

Treasure Hunter

There is a new Treasure Hunter chinmei NPC that has appeared in South Archosaur and other cities. Pay him 88k and he will give you a treasure map. Click the map to see a spot somewhere in the world with a red X. If you find this spot a chest will appear that you can dig and summon a mob. If you are having trouble finding the spot in-game you can try looking for it on this large map:

The summoned mob has a chance to drop a higher level map or rare materials for g12 / g14 ornaments (crafted at the Treasure Hunter). The mob gets progressively harder with higher and higher level treasure maps up to map level 5. The 5th mob is difficult and you may need a squad to help you kill him but he drops the rarest and most expensive mats.

10 man squads

The squad limit has been raised to 10 but not for old instances. The only real instance that supports 10 people is the new "Endless Universe".

You can also have 10 man squads in the world map, in shared maps like Lothranis and OHT, and in TW.

New Veno Rare Pet

There is a new rare pet in Morai that is a very good DD pet, second only to a pheonix. It's a bone dragon called "Derjan's Ancient Hatchling" patrols the area (354 538), (346 528), (362 544) in the areas called "Derjan's Rest" and "Burning Scar". The respawn time is 24 - 48 hours and the pet can not be traded or account stashed (so it's unlikely it will be camped).

Lucidgold / Lucidsilver Envoy

There is a new daily with a chance at some incredible prizes. To start it you must talk to the new Envoy NPCs found in starting areas / arch.
Talk to the Lucidsilver envoy between 8:00pm and 9:00pm server time for a free Lucidsilver Chest after a 30 minute wait. Talk to the Lucidgold envoy between 9:00pm and 10:00pm for a free Lucidgold Chest. These chests have a small chance at some incredible prizes.

Lucidsilver Chest:
Lucidgold Chest:
Some of the items you can win:
- Platinum Charms
- Mounts
- Scroll of Tome
- Lunar Insignia Ornament
- An Ultimate Soulgem Pack

New Instance - Endless Universe
A new instance is accessible in Morai called Endless Universe accessible from the Altar of Shades. You can enter this instance with a 10 person squad! This is a ONCE a day instance.


You must enter Morai, and complete the complete list of YELLOW Legendary quests. If you're having problems finding them, check your Available Quests section of your Quest Log.

Upon completion of the last quest on the chain, you will be asked to visit the Elder of 1000 Streams. When you do, be sure to pick up the Purple quest from him. Reenter Morai and follow its chain. It will bring you to the entrance npc of the new instance. Be sure to have "[Tuc Su Toxin]" in your inventory. Do NOT enter the instance until you have assembled a squad for this. It's once per day, and you will not be allowed back in if you leave after entering once. You're ready to find a squad. You MUST have at LEAST 8 people in order to start this new instance.

For a walkthrough of the new instance -go to this link:

At the end you are rewarded with either 360k xp or a chest with a chance of holding the new G13 PVE gear.

New Equipment
The new equipment available in Descent has two new stats not seen in other equipment
Slaying Level - Increases damage done to monsters (but not players)
Warding Level - Reduces damage taken from monsters (but not players)

The benefit from these do not simply add with normal attack levels. The benefit multiplies. So if you get +30% damage from normal attack levels and +40% damage from slaying levels, together you won't have +70% damage (addition) but instead you will have +82% more damage since 1.3 * 1.4 = 1.82.

In general this gear comes with low base stats but the Slaying Levels and Warding Levels make them pretty good for PVE. The refinement bonus is pretty good but due to the low base stats these are probably unsuitable for PVP.

The new equipment comes in 3 grades, this gear can not be traded or account stashed..

G12 - You get this set for free from the yellow discovery quest. The weapon comes with +45 Slaying Level.

G13 - Obtainable from the final Chest in the Endless Universe instance
G13 weapon = 3% chance, G13 armor = 17% chance. The weapon comes with +50 Slaying Level.

G15 - You can get this gear from your order. The full set is unlocked after obtaining 5,000 prestige. This gear comes with random stats that you can reroll by buying reroll mats with influence. The quality of the random adds is pretty high, it's on par with Nirvana G15 but don't expect to see any -interval anywhere. All of the weapons come with +60 Slaying Level.

The G15 gear is spread out across the 3 Orders. (credit to Korren for information here)
You unlock more and more of this gear as you accumulate Prestige.

G15 Boots = 2000 prestige requirement + 250 influence cost + 5.25m coin
G15 Wrist = 2500 prestige requirement + 250 influence cost + 5.25m coin
G15 Helm = 4000 prestige requirement + 340 influence cost + 7.14m coin
G15 Pants = 4500 prestige requirement + 340 influence cost + 7.14m coin
G15 Chest = 5000 prestige requirement + 340 influence cost + 7.14m coin
G15 Weapon = 5000 prestige requirement + 900 influence cost + 17.64m coin

Order of Corona
G15 Arcane Armors
G15 Daggers, Bow

Order of the Shroud
G15 Heavy Armors
G15 Arcane Weapons

Order of Luminance
G15 Light Armors
G15 Pole/Sword/Axes (No Fists / Claws)

re: Your Guide to the New Expansion

How to lvl up to lvl 105 Quickly:
Credit goes to Korren for this info from pwi forum:

Once your prestiges reach the max cap of 5000 in each order, u will be able to exchange 30 influence for an special item.

Luminance - Cube letter pretty useless...

Corona - Nirvana talisman ewwww...

Shroud - phenix valley order which lasts for 24hours instead of 15min.

which means u can enter phenix valley any time of the day.

if you are able to finish the instance with 1-2 pulls, and hyper 20 times a day(10activations from old set, 10 activations from new set).

if your gears are good enuf to solo this instance.

just imagine...
